Copies were sent on publication to local authorities, local authority associations, police, interested professional organisations, lobby groups, monitoring organisations, and individuals who have requested copies. I also sent copies of the first two documents to Members who have written to me on the subject of speed in recent months.
In addition, a number of leaflets and posters have been issued to road safety officers, the police and motoring organisations dealing with winter driving, drinking and driving, including rehabilitation courses for drink drive offenders; and seat belts.
The DVLA has also distributed leaflets on seatbelts, the highway code, speed and cycling with vehicle excise duty reminders. The transport research laboratory regularly publishes research reports on road safety topics.
